Barnette Magnet does give preference to siblings. This occurs in two ways.  Firstly, if an open space is available for other siblings during the lottery when their sibling was chosen for an open spot.  However, enrollment is dependent on space available in the needed grade during the lottery. There may be more than one sibling on the wait list. Students will be called on an individual basis in the order placed on the wait list as grade level openings become available. Second, after all open spots are full, sibling preference is then done for that lottery year and is only enacted during the lottery the following year after one sibling has been actively enrolled and attended Barnette.
